Hey a card game would be cool and shouldn't be hard to implement for the people inside the waiting room and whilst alive! ;o that'd actually be really cool something to do so I don't have to get bored and sacrifice myself for a new round if I'm stuck with no ammo and a friend lol

Huh.

I've never heard any of these ideas. Makes me wonder where you guys heard them o.o

Although, the idea of TV's to watch the other players until you can come back into the game by taking over a survivor or whatever respawn method there is, would be awesome :x

Indeed sun, anyone seen that mythbusters with the playing cards? .. I don't remember the verdict but thrown playing cards should be a weapon! .. you could join the waiting room to find a collage of death fueled by your average sore looser.

Or maybe dead players can move around in the form of a snail, that'd be so fun :o You have to avoide getting squashed, reach the lettuce to respawn.

There should be a medium sized room with a bunch of kicked over casino tables and you get like 100 razor sharp ninja slicing playing cards and like deathmatch other players with them. I CHALLENGE YOU TO DUEL!

I'm still a fan of, if you were bitten, you watch the game from the view of yourself, re-animated, but you can't control it. Not sure how well that'd go over, maybe even a 3rd person.

This just gave me an idea... if it's possible in ANY WAY, NMRiH should allow character customization. That way you can make your individual model truly your own. That doesn't matter too much from your perspective, since NMRiH is an FPS; but imagine how it'd feel to see the character you yourself created turn into a zombie, while you watch from third person?

I imagine the devs could do this by simply changing the color of certain parts of every model, adding little doo-dads, and saving each modification as a separate, byte-sized model. Could someone confirm if this would work?

Yeah something to stop you from getting bored while the other players finish the round would be great in a co-op game like this. In zm it's SO boring to just watch the other people camping somewhere while you're in spec mode.

Ya it would be lame to watch a survival mode. Just watching everyone camping and shooting through the windows. But its awsome to play them.

Could they just have like a waiting room that's a small shooting range with some weps and stuff? Then you could practice how to use certain weapons if you run across them, and you could also just practice your accuracy with the iron sights.

thats pretty much what I was asking about, but it seems a little overboard. I'd be happy with just the regular ability to freelook and add the ability to follow your running zombie.

I think that when dead, you enter BACK to the game, but invisible so that you can roam as "ghost" in the map. Of course you collide with the objects, but not with the players/NPCs and you don't have noclip like spectators.

That Scaryzombie's idea is great too..

But it wouldn be fun anymore after a while we need camera screens of the battlefield and perhaps some games you can play together with great replayability. To give the games more sense it would be nice to have credits for some games like poker, blackjack or sth. else but there should also be free games like a flipper perhaps :) The higher score u got the more credits you can spend. Would also be nice to have a little screen that tells u the 3 richest players inside. Just an idea that came around hope you like it :)

Well who cares I mean if they want to play poker let them and if the admin doesn't agree with that he'll kick them and the rest of the server if there is vote kick I mean poker would be awesome to pass time without doing stupid stuff it'll keep the people dead contained and happy
